How to Know When It’s Time for a Furnace Repair

In Manassas Park you rely on your furnace to keep you comfortable throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace service visit in the near future. As a minimum, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and impact your furnace’s execution. It could even create issues with your furnace’s limit switch, which works furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some indicators for you to look for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a professional, like Woody's Sudden Service Inc, if you see any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? Signs related to your blower could indicate a bit of a problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cool? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating loudly or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a blocked condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of problems. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.
